Martha Gellhorn, was a famous American war correspondent who covered most of the major wars of the 20th century. At every war and conflict, from the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s to the Vietnam War in the ’60s and 70’s, Martha was present, reporting on what she saw. She even stowed away on a hospital ship so that she could cover the Normandy landings.
So, Martha Gellhorn knew war and she hated it.
Below is one of her statements about war. It seems to me that it is also applicable to many other ills – famine, poverty, abuse – in our world.
